About Reno Pops Orchestra

The Reno Pops is comprised of students and adults of all ages. Our orchestra members come from all walks of life: Advanced high school and college students; adults who enjoy music as a hobby; school music teachers; retired folks; and professional musicians who like having a home base where they can keep their skills up between gigs.

The Reno Pops Orchestra seeks to help children and adults in our community explore a wide range of orchestral music. To accomplish this goal, we:

  • Provide free and low cost concerts in Northern Nevada and Northeastern California to as wide an audience as possible, including family and children’s concerts.
  • Educate and excite audiences with entertaining, accessible performances of the highest quality from a wide variety of styles, periods, and genres.
  • Gather regularly as a community to devoted musicians from all walks of life to share our love of an dedication to music; performing professional-level literature under an accomplished conductor.
  • Encourage young talent through scholarships and guest artist opportunities, our summer music camp and our other quality outreach programs.
